The King And The Corpse: The Crick Crack Club, Tuup, Sheema Mukherjee
A king is obliged to carry the corpse of a hanged man on his back – but the corpse is not dead, it is possessed by a storytelling vampire, whose enigmatic puzzles threaten to burst the King’s head into a thousand pieces…
With customary charismatic style, The Unorthodox, Unprecedented, Preacher – TUUP - takes to the stage with sitar virtuoso, Sheema Mukherjee, to tell transglobalised versions of these stunning, 2,000 year old tales. As much an encounter as a performance, this formidable collaboration by two core members the wild world music collective Transglobal Underground, brings an 11th Century Indian fairytale to the contemporary stage.
Enter a place of metaphor, magic and ritual...
